You can make delicious, sweet grilled pineapple without ever having to set foot outdoors or light up a grill. Prepare slices or chunks of this nutritious, low-calorie fruit in your oven. Grilled pineapple is a tasty accompaniment to baked ham, a delicious side dish with Caribbean-style chicken or pork, or pairs well with dessert crepes and ice cream for a special dessert.

Step 1

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Spray your grill pan with nonfat cooking spray and place it in the oven to preheat it, too.

Step 2

Peel the pineapple. Cut off and discard the crown, or top. Cut out the pineapple core and cut the fruit into 1/2-inch-thick slices.

Step 3

Remove the hot grill pan from the oven. Place the pineapple slices onto the grill pan. Sprinkle each pineapple slice with a little loose brown sugar and some cinnamon if desired. Alternatively, you can marinate the sliced pineapple in a tropical marinade, which might include dark rum, lime juice and brown sugar, before placing it on your grill pan.

Step 4

Put the pineapple in the oven and grill for 7 to 8 minutes. Remove the pan and turn the slices over, and then sprinkle them with more brown sugar or marinade. Put the fruit back into the oven and grill for another 7 to 8 minutes or until the pineapple slices are golden brown and the sugar is beginning to bubble and caramelize. Be sure not to let it burn.

Step 5

Remove from the grill pan from the oven and serve the pineapple as part of your entree or dessert.
